Nice hotel, Helpful staff Staff were able to provide clear directions to the hotel. I was not aware that breakfast was included in the rate though until I checked out. That could have been made clearer. But expensive as i was travelling on my own and price was for two people sharing the room.

Pocket Guide: 4 stars Hotels in Cardiff

When it comes to four star accommodation in and around Cardiff, there is plenty of choice available. If you really want to soak up the buzz of this thriving city, with its busy nightlife and excellent shopping, you can choose one of the many hotels in the city centre, and be within easy walking distance of the shops, pubs, bars, restaurants, museums and other attractions. Or you might prefer somewhere a bit quieter that you can retreat to after a busy day exploring the city, in which case there are a good number of places to stay in the surrounding area.

Cardiff is the most popular tourist destination in Wales and has an incredibly rich history, having been settled by humans since Neolithic times. There are a number of Neolithic tombs and burial chambers to attest to this, as well as Bronze Age tumuli, Iron Age forts, and a Roman fort and settlement. Cardiff Castle was built in Norman times, on the site of the Roman fort, and to this day remains a centrepiece of the city. You can explore the long history of the city by visiting some of these sites, and some of the city’s museums, such as the National Museum Cardiff, the Cardiff Story Museum and St. Fagans National History Museum.

If you like to partake in a little retail therapy, you will find yourself spoilt for choice in Cardiff. From unspoilt traditional Victorian and Edwardian arcades, a Victorian indoor market, quirky independent shops, second-hand and antique shops galore, to ultra-modern shopping centres selling the latest in high street fashion, whatever your tastes you will find something to suit.

If you’d rather stay a little further out from the city, there are numerous hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs you can choose from in Bridgend, Pontyclun, Pyle, Pontypridd, Barry, Chepstow and Cwmbran. From elegant country hotels to cosy farmhouses and cottages, you can have the best of both worlds as you enjoy the busy city by day and the idyllic countryside by night. Excellent public transport links will make your journey to and from the city easy, but once in the countryside you might forget just how close you are to a bustling urban centre.

There are also many things to see and do in the area around Cardiff, from museums, castles, stately homes and gardens, and much more. The National Roman Legion Museum in Caerleon tells the history of the Romans in Wales, while the National Big Pit Coal Museum in Blaenavon explores the country’s coal mining heritage. Historical buildings in the area include the fascinating Castell Coch and Llandaff Cathedral.

There are plenty of recreational activities available both in Cardiff itself and in the surrounding countryside, including golf, walking, and mountain biking, as well as a whole range of watersports in Cardiff Bay.

Whether you choose to stay in the heart of the city or in the idyllic countryside around it, you can be sure of a comfortable stay if you book 4 star accommodation through Expedia.
